Here is a look at Oklahoma's 51-20 win over Tulsa by the numbers:

* 2: Conference USA champions on the field. Tulsa won the 2012 C-USA football, and OU won the 2013 C-USA rowing championship. The Sooner rowers were honored Saturday on Owen Field.

* 3: OU starting quarterbacks from Kansas. Bell joined Jack Mitchell (1946-48) and Jake Sills (1998).

* 5.1: Average yard per rush by OU running backs; not bad on a day when the Sooners didn't seem to run it well. Tulsa running backs average 3.3.

* 10: 3-0 starts for OU in 15 seasons under Bob Stoops.

* 10: OU receivers with a catch. The Sooners entered the game with nine players with a catch.

* 35:16: Time of possession for the Sooners, who had the ball more clock time than did Tulsa in each of the four quarters.

* 281: First-half passing yards for Blake Bell. OU had 243 passing yards combined in its first two games.
